    Hi,
    I am creating a website for a client and he wants me to use buddy press for his site. The client is a retailer of clothes and I was wondering if someone has already done this for a clothing company.

    I would like to see some good examples to learn from before I start working on their site.

    Cheers,
    vishal

    Clothes retailers I’ve seen in passing using WordPress install e-commerce plugins with or without BuddyPress. Check out some fashion sites using BP at http://www.bpinspire.com/high-quality-buddypress-sites/fashion. There’s also relatively “young” BuddyPress retailer shop riotcart.com which uses BuddyPress in a section of the site http://www.riotcart.com/groups.

    Hi, I run RiotCart :) Just wanted to pop in and say that I’m no longer using the BP groups component for anything but a private group/forum for my vendors. If you’d like to see the working parts of the site (which is in the midst of an overhaul, so be kind), you can do so here: http://www.riotcart.com

    I personally think that WordPress is a great platform for running an online shop, and have set up many standalone ecommerce sites for individual crafters using it in conjunction with my personal favorite shopping cart plugin, eShop. This is actually what led to the idea for RiotCart, which is more of a venue for crafters to set up a shop/site in the RC network, rather than a shop in itself. The only thing that RC sells is the monthly shop hosting terms. We use Buddypress more for the shoppers themselves, as it gave me a starting point from which I’ve implimented a p2p feedback system, a “wishlist” feature, and more. I’ve tried offering members the BP groups several different times, and the concept never seems to take off.
